What a way to crash the former #1 EDA company:

  1. Start a hostile bid for another company amidst an uproar of opposition
  2. Fail in your hostile bid, blame the smaller company
  3. Miss your quarterly sales numbers, stock gets hammered 30% in one day
  4. Resign with your Intel cronies
  5. Restate company earnings because you were inflating the numbers, more price crashing
  6. Attract a class-action lawsuit from an ambulance chaser in Colorado (Dyer & Berens)

Let’s get back to the business of innovation and creating must-have EDA technologies and flows for the bleeding edge to main-stream users.
